Ideally, it’s best to buy a new battery before the old one fails – because if it dies and leaves you stranded somewhere, you probably won’t have the time to make an informed decision.

You might need a new battery if:

  • Your battery is over 4 years old
  • Your car is difficult to start
  • The battery won’t hold a charge
  • There is corrosion on the battery post
  • The case is swollen or the posts are loose

If you think you need a new battery (or you’re sure you do!), come in to Blaskin & Lane. We’ll test your current battery, and if necessary, help you pick the right battery for Calgary’s climate and your specific vehicle.
